Gosars celebrate six generations

Posted: Friday, Jun 13th, 2014

Klay and Kris Gosar represent the fifth and sixth generations of Gosar’s producing all-natural foods. The family is especially well-known for their sausages, and can often be seen manning their booth at Valley events.

MONTE VISTA — “Our family has been making sausage in America ever since Grandpa Frank [Gosar] came over from Yugoslavia in 1900,” Kris Gosar explained. “And we’ve been making it pretty much the same way for six generations now.”

Kris and his son, Klay, can often be seen manning their booths at local festivals and events. Their all-natural, handmade sausages are popular throughout the region, and they take great pride in the work they do.

“Grandpa Frank started the business in Wyoming, and then my grandfather moved it to the Valley back in the 70s,” Kris said. Besides making sausage, the family grew wheat and alfalfa on their ranch, located just outside of Monte Vista. At first they marketed the grain to mills, feedlots, and other farms. Then, in 1978, they decided to build a mill and produce their own stone-ground flour.
